It Is Finished | Good Friday 2024

It is Finished 

Mark 8:31-32 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard

A price has to be paid

Create enough interest 

Heal enough to show his power

Get close enough to choose/ train leaders 

Teach enough truth in memorable ways 

Create enough controversy to be captured 

Die with the weight of world’s sin on his shoulders 

Isaiah 53:5-6,10 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all… the Lord makes his life an offering for sin

It Is Finished 

Open to everyone 

Romans 3:23-26 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair…  God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.

He was pierced for my transgressions, 

He was crushed for my iniquities 

The punishment that brought me peace was on Him

By His wounds I am healed. 

Like sheep I have gone astray

I have often turned to my own way

But the Lord has laid on Him my iniquity

The Lord makes His life an offering for my sin
